Wedding: Fortenberry – Pritchett, 1932 MS

This little wedding announcement leads to many questions. Only basic information is included. Who were the parents of the groom? When were they married? Because this was published in early January 1932 I wonder if they were married in late 1931. It would be nice to learn more about the happy couple.

25 March 1905 MS - 12 Jan 2001 MS

Daughter of James Calvin Fortenberry & Ella Blackwell

  1. I love finding newspaper items about ancestors but it's frustrating when the article says so little and I don't have any other information yet. On the other hand, research and trying to puzzle through lack of information is one of the fun parts of family history for me. I hope you learn more.
